Positioning The Wistar Institute as a world leader in a new era of scientific discovery requires investments in our faculty, our research programs, and in state-of-the-art facilities — all of which are priorities for the Building Wistar, Changing the World campaign.
Our seven-story research tower meets the needs of "Team Science" today and in the future.
Diversifying Wistar’s faculty and expanding Wistar’s brand of discovery science allows us to match current strengths with new and complementary expertise in emerging fields of innovation.
The microscope in the image belonged to William E. Horner, M.D., a collaborator with Caspar Wistar, M.D., in the early 1800s.
Dr. Horner, a lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania, was a pioneer of the use of microscopes in anatomical and medical research. He authored Special Anatomy and Histology, a seminal text on the subject.
